"Amazing Holiday Home and Location!"

This is a beautifully done out property. All the love and care and attention to detail I like. Perfect layout, accommodated all our needs and all bedrooms have their own en suite which was perfect for our family stay, and really comfy beds. Everything we could've asked for and more. Our little boy loved feeding the chickens and the bench swing. Our little boy is 3 so had to be supervised outside the property as there is a small pond and large pond but wasn't a problem.

A really high standard property in the perfect location for Wales, Liverpool and Chester.

We would definitely stay again as so much to do in that area.
A brilliant stay was enjoyed by all!

x Thank You x

Thank you for your lovely review, I am so pleased you enjoyed Pond Cottage and our beautiful City.

Truly a beautiful place to stay, extremely comfortable and had everything we could possibly have needed. each bedroom was beautiful and the beds SO comfortable that it was difficult to get up in the mornings ! The cottage has fantastic motorway links and Chester Zoo & Cheshire Oaks are right on the doorstep.
A HUGE thank you to Julie for been so accommodating, we had a wonderful week and hope to see you in the future, and if you fancy selling that beautiful picture in the lounge Julie, put me first on the list :) !
